You’re never too old
Often in seminars, someone will say to me, “I’m too old to change” or “I’m too old to follow my dreams.” This is pure nonsense. As long as you have a pulse, you can move toward realizing your dreams.
Of course, there are some exceptions. If you’re 75 and want to be a professional baseball player, this is not likely to happen, however, there are lots of other dreams you can fulfill regardless of your age.
I’ve always enjoyed the story about the woman who told author and speaker, Wally Amos (of Famous Amos cookie fame), that at 54, if she were to go to law school, in three years when she graduated, she would be 57. Wally asked her how old she would be in three years if she did not go to law school?
I remember a story in the Philadelphia Inquirer about a man who had worked in a dry cleaning store for twenty one years without missing a day of work. What made the story unique was that the man was eighty one years old when he was hired!
The man, 103 years old when the story was published, was still going strong.
What are some of your dreams?
- What is it that you would like to have in your life?
- What would you like to do?
- Where would you like to go?
- Who would you like to meet?
- What would you like to be known for?
- What would you like to leave as your legacy?
